Studio Elroy by LINTEL Studio For Architecture, carved from a heritage building’s basement, showcases the potential of inspired living in a compact space. Spanning a mere 28m2, this self-contained unit ingeniously houses a queen-sized bed, home office, kitchen, living area, wine cellar and bathroom. A protruding joinery unit defines indoor and outdoor spaces while allowing natural light to enter from above. The studio’s cochineal-red paint allows the layout to remain discreet. Instead of street views, changing shades of salmon to garnet, illuminated by sunlight and shadows, mark time inside.
